  • Biden’s Pick For National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan Suggests the US Should Help Facilitate China’s Rise

    President-elect Joe Biden made another cabinet selection on Monday, announcing that Jake Sullivan will serve as his National Security Adviser. Sullivan worked for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and was an advisor for Biden during the Obama administration. The selection signals a Biden administration willing to negotiate with China, as Sullivan has, in the past, suggested America should be involved in their rise. During a lecture in 2017, Sullivan told students at Lowy Institute that “we need to strike a middle course – one that encourages China’s rise in a manner consistent with an open, fair, rules-based, regional order.”...
  • Flashback: Reporter Fired After Report That Trump Spent Thanksgiving Tweeting and Golfing – He Was Actually in Afghanistan Visiting Troops

    Just one year ago, a Newsweek reporter was fired after running a story that President Trump spent his Thanksgiving tweeting and golfing. In reality, he had made a trip to Afghanistan to spend time with the troops. “How is Trump spending Thanksgiving? Tweeting, golfing and more,” a headline from political journalist Jessica Kwong proclaimed. The story began, “As with any other day of the year, Trump will probably be tweeting, or expressing his opinions in another way.” The President actually made an unannounced visit to Afghanistan to greet US troops and meet the Afghani President Ashraf Ghani to discuss bringing...
  • Kayleigh McEnany Slams Democrat Lockdown Rules as ‘Orwellian’ – Predicts Trump Will Defeat COVID in a ‘Second Administration’

    Kayleigh McEnany slammed Democrat lockdowns meant to slow the spread of COVID as “Orwellian” and said it isn’t the American way to threaten people with jail time if they don’t comply. “A lot of the guidelines you’re seeing are Orwellian,” she said. “The American people know how to protect their health. We’ve dealt with COVID for many months.” And while Biden intends to conquer the pandemic by locking people in their basement as he did, McEnany predicted something a little different that is sure to send the media into an apoplectic frenzy. “We believe that we will [handle Covid] going...

    LaVar Ball is having a pretty good week. On Wednesday, his youngest son LaMelo was drafted by the Charlotte Hornets with the third overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. In making that selection, the Hornets ensured that LaVar would go down in NBA history as the first father with two sons taken within the top three picks. While on his celebratory media tour, LaVar appeared on a podcast and took the opportunity to take a jab at President Donald Trump.

    Larry Tesler, a pioneer of personal computing credited with creating the cut, copy and paste as well as the search and replace functions, has died. He was 74. Tesler was not nearly as well known as computing giants such as Bill Gates or Steve Jobs. But he played an early, central role in making computers accessible to people without computer engineering degrees, i.e. most of us. Xerox, the company for whom he developed the functions, tweeted out news of his death. "Your workday is easier thanks to his revolutionary ideas," the company's tweet said. Cut, copy and paste and search...

    Rick Santorum's near-miss in Iowa provides a reminder that, for many Republican voters (and not a few candidates), religion and politics overlap. If you need another reminder, though, consider this: recently, the Smithsonian has restored and put on display a weird and fantastic 19th century book known as "The Jefferson Bible." That's Jefferson as in Thomas, and this private, personal document offers a useful case study in how politics and Christianity have mixed it up in American history, right up to today. To understand Jefferson's Bible, you need to start with the one book he published in his lifetime: "Notes...

    The Pickups and SUVs Obama had wished culled  from the lineup in 2009 now drive sales, profitablity Marchionne pretending to listen to statist bonheads FIAT has been making a lot of positive news over the last week, first by paying off all $5.9B of the US/Canadian auto bail-out loans to the US/CN Treasuries (six years early), then three days later announcing the acquisition of the entire US Government stake. This provides FIAT-and-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne with complete control of Chrysler, thus ridding himself and his companies of the Obama Administration's unhelpful influence.Obviously Obama could use anything that resembles an economic success story right about...

    Last November, in response to protest, the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery removed a video installation depicting ants crawling over a small crucifix. This coming November, the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History will exhibit a cut-and-paste Bible of a mere 86 pages. Were it the work of David Wojnarowicz (the artist behind the crucifix video) or Andres Serrano (of "Piss Christ" fame), this Bible would doubtless stir up a hornet's nest. But in fact, it was created by Thomas Jefferson. During the election of 1800, Jefferson was denounced as a "howling atheist" and "a confirmed infidel" known for "vilifying the...

    In an indication that he expects to be Barack Obama's vice-presidential pick, Sen. Joseph Biden (D-Del) has begun writing a 50,000-word acceptance speech, aides to the senator confirmed today. The address, which Mr. Biden has been working on around the clock, is an abridged version of a 200,000-word acceptance speech that Mr. Biden wrote when he ran for President in 1988. According to those familiar with the speech, if Mr. Biden is tapped as Mr. Obama's vice presidential choice the Delaware senator would begin delivering the speech on Wednesday night of the Democratic convention and conclude it on Thursday night....

    With the general election little more than six weeks away, our letters to the editor mailbox is filled daily with passionate missives supporting candidates or skewering the political opposition or media coverage. Many of these letter writers will be disappointed. Their letters won't be considered for publication because they're what journalists now call "Astroturf" -- Internet-based letter-writing campaigns initiated by groups that provide the text or the talking points. As a copy editor for the Post-Gazette's editorial page, I handle the letters to the editor, which means choosing 50 to 60 for publication each week from about 300 submitted and...

    Opening Statement Dear FRiends: I once suffered two great frustrations in being a freelance political writer. First, the loneliness: you put an article out there, and you might as well have thrown it down a black hole for all the response you get. Second, the ghettoization: when you do get response, it would be from folks you agree with. Not fun for folks like me who reliish--no, crave and need--political argument. Then came the Internet, the blogs--and: problem solved. I have especially enjoyed having my articles in the Village Voice posted on Free Republic by "dead," and arguing about them...

    Hi Folks. Can anyone give me some pointers on how to use HTML to post pictures and quotes from other sites? I have been trying to post some of the articles from FR to FreeDominion ( Canada's sister site) but am having no luck. Also, I would like to post some stuff on FR from FD, and from some of the Canadian newspapers. Any sites you can suggest that could help me learn? Many thanks to my fellow Conservatives.
